It is unlikely you will see cockroaches during the day unless there is a particularly significant infestation. They prefer dark corners, under cupboards, white goods or in food areas. These insects prefer to get about at night, where they feed on foodstuffs, contaminating food as they go.
Cockroaches spread all kinds of bacteria, parasitic worms and other human pathogens. They pick up germs on the spines of their legs and when they access areas where food is prepared, such as your kitchen benchtop, they easily contaminate food and utensils. Droppings can also cause severe allergic reaction.
When a cockroach sheds its skin it dries up and becomes dust, this has been known to causing allergic reactions for those with asthma.
The health hazards associated with this disease-spreading insect are a real concern for both homeowners and businesses. For businesses, the presence of cockroaches poses a real threat of contamination and damage to stored items and brand reputation.
